Which frequency i should use for FPV (Malta & Beginner)

Hello all,
I am new to FPV but not to RC and i was wondering which is the best frequency for Malta.
I have already see a lot of video's and ready a lot of articles but still i haven't decide for a frequency.
I was thinking to go for 1.2 with circular polarized antenna but the problem is that you need a filter to use with your 2.4 radio.

I was thinking to build a tricopter and add a a video camera (Mobius) from hobbyking the only problem is that iBcrazy say that you need a filter to use 1.2ghz with your radio and i cannot find it from hobbyking.

I am planning to use it for filming nice scene etc.. i do not want to go super long distance 1 or 2 miles is good for me.

However if there is anyone from Malta who have already an FPV system and can suggest me the best frequency i can use i will be very grateful.

Regards,
Andrew

To be honest with you i have already saw that video and i am not sure which frequency to choose, where i live in Malta is a small island and this is what i think:

900 - is good but we have 3G Mobile all over the place
1.2 - maybe this is the best for Malta but not for a new people i think?
2.4 - cannot use it with my 2.4 radio so no
5.8 - seen to be the best but if i go behind a tree or building i lose the signal is it good for Malta?

I wish that someone from Malta can tell me which system he use and which is the best for me to start.
